Abbott has been photographing birds, wildlife and general nature subjects since 1967. His photography benefits from his extensive career experience in areas of biomedical and computer R&D, studies of photographic technique and composition, and experiences teaching classes and workshops—and many hours of practice. Abbott has served as a photographer at the High Desert Museum since 2008, allowing him to gain knowledge of raptor behavior that helps him capture stunning photos of birds-in-flight. His work has been published in scientific and industry journals and fine art books, and is used extensively by the High Desert Museum. 

Abbott’s broad range of interests, experience and outgoing personality contribute to his ability to communicate complex subjects so laypeople can understand them. He loves to share his in-depth knowledge and encourage others in the art and skill of photography.
